Zeitkratzer: Feldman V Whitehouse In Marseilles

European soloists ensemble zeitzkratzer have announced a 2009 tandem performance of the work of the late New York Modernist Morton Feldman and William Bennett of power electronics outfit Whitehouse. The juxtaposition of both musician's work is an attempt to highlight the focus upon the sonics of music making found in the work of both artists, or the "total abdication of compositional structures but complete and exact control of the SONIC side." Performed as part of Marseilles' Festival Les Musiques, May 14, 2009
